It's difficult to leave Young's without a purchase - the range of both antiquarian and second hand books covers Scottish history and literature to more wide-ranging novels and even pop-up books. Recommended for a happy place to browse and be delighted!

A little gem of a shop in Shawlands selling second hand and antiquarian books at reasonable prices. Well worth a visit for those with an interest.
